[dm-devel] [PATCH 3/3] multipathd: Implement systemd watchdog integration



In the past there have been several instances where multipathd
would hang with the checkerloop as some path checker might not
be able to return in time.
This patch now activates the watchdog feature from systemd
to shutdown (and possibly restart) multipathd in these
situations.
Due to a bug in systemd watchdog integration only works
correctly with later version (> 206), so watchdog integration
has been disabled per default.

+When compiled with systemd support two systemd service files are
+installed,
+.I multipathd.service
+and
+.I multipathd.socket
+The
+.I multipathd.socket
+service instructs systemd to intercept the CLI command socket, so
+that any call to the CLI interface will start-up the daemon if
+required.
+The
+.I multipathd.service
+file carries the definitions for controlling the multipath daemon.
+The daemon itself uses the
+.B sd_notify(3)
+interface to communicate with systemd. The following unit keywords are
+recognized:
+.TP
+.I WatchdogSec=
+Enables the internal watchdog from systemd. multipath will send a
+notification via
+.B sd_notify(3)
+to systemd to reset the watchdog. If specified the
+.I polling_interval
+and
+.I max_polling_interval
+settings will be overridden by the watchdog settings.
+
+Please note that systemd prior to version 207 has issues which prevent
+the systemd-provided watchdog from working correctly. So the watchdog
+is not enabled per default, but has to be enabled manually by updating
+the multipathd.service file.
